Sleep apnea not only affects your sleep, it impacts your waking hours as well. It is a serious medical disorder that should be treated as soon as possible to preserve your health. With this condition, your brain is deprived of oxygen, causing you to awaken numerous times throughout the night. Schedule a consultation with our dentists if you are experiencing any of the following:
Sleep apnea can raise your likelihood of developing systemic illnesses, such as high blood pressure, heart problems, type-2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
Treating your sleep disorder can make a significant impact on your health and your everyday quality of life. You may not realize how pervasive the effects have been upon your life until you are finally able to sleep deeply through the night. While some doctors recommend continuous positive air pressure (CPAP) machines, many patients are CPAP intolerant and are unable to wear the mask while they sleep. Drs. Fulton and Sargent treat sleep apnea with oral appliances, a CPAP alternative. A simple custom oral appliance can prevent the soft tissue from collapsing and blocking the airway. You can get a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling energized with sleep apnea treatment.
